ASTM WK45280

    Revision of F2907 - 14 Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Sling Carriers

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: F2907 - 14b

    Developed by Subcommittee: F15.21 | Committee F15 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK45280

    1. Rationale

    As discussed during the fall 2013 subcommittee meeting, the current Occupant Retention test criteria (section 6.3) are not accurately separating good ring slings from poorly-constructed ring slings. (Good being defined as those that have been sold into the US market for a decade or more and have performed well for consumers without incidents.)
